The parents of missing four-year-old Madeleine McCann are due to make a personal pilgrimage to the holiest site in Portugal to pray for a miracle.

Gerry and Kate McCann are travelling to the Marian shrine of Fatima to ask for their daughter's safe return.

The visit may well prove to be the first step in an expected European tour aimed at spreading news of Madeleine's abduction across the continent.

But for Kate McCann, the trip will be the fulfilment of a personal ambition to pray at the shrine.

Friends said Mrs McCann had considered making the four-hour trip from Praia da Luz even before Madeleine was abducted and had been set on making the journey ever since.

It will be the first time Mrs McCann, who kept up her vigil in Praia da Luz while her husband was away in the UK on Monday, has left the village since Madeleine was snatched from their holiday apartment on May 3, other than trips to the police station in Portimao to give statements.

The couple say their Catholic faith has sustained them during the recent turmoil.

Mr McCann in particular is said by friends to have found renewed faith in recent days while his wife's religious belief is long-standing.

Ten days ago, about 300,000 pilgrims flocked to Fatima to mark the 90th anniversary of a vision of the Virgin Mary at the site by three shepherds.

The pilgrimage coincided with the weekend of Madeleine's fourth birthday, which received coverage across Portugal and around the world.
